“sad to see it go!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

Such a shame to see it go as it is one of the very few "original" places left in Singapore. I lived in Changi in the 50s and there is not a lot still recognisable from that era - except the house I lived in. That's still there. Not a high rise yet!!

“Worth the walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Worth visiting to see the lovely burial grounds in Singapore. Some are very old, and some and some are new. Take your camera and get some lovely photos. Watch out for the monkeys!

“Visit it before it vanishes!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

Singapores ancestors resting in peace for decades have to make way for a highway. In the process we will loose a beautiful piece of woodland for ever. Visit it and capture the images before the woods vanish!

“Visit this historic cemetery before it gets destroyed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Parts of Bukit Brown are set to be redeveloped into roads and housing, so visit it while you can. This is the oldest Chinese cemetery in Singapore and it is fascinating to look at the graves, some of which are over a hundred years old. The area is also rich in biodiversity and popular with bird spotters.

“Come before it's too late”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

This has amazing history. And it is also known as a birder's paradise. Be sure to go with someone who knows Singapore history. And make sure you go before they build the road that will go right through it. I heard it will still be here, but not the same.
